Sparkling Christmas – Foiling and Die Cutting with Jean Manis

Hello crafty friends! I’m Jean, a paper crafter living in the Pacific Northwest blogging at Right as Rain. I am delighted to share cards combining two of my favorite techniques – die-cutting and foiling – using the Sparkling Christmas Collection at Spellbinders. For all three cards, I’ve used a color scheme of red, green, and gold. With this collection, you’ll create elegant and distinctive holiday cards.

The 2020 Spellbinders collection of 10 etched die sets, 13 Glimmer plate sets and a clear stamp set will knock your Christmas Stockings off this year! There’s something for everyone and they’ve been meticulously designed to work together in oh so many ways.

Christmas Wishes Joyful Tree Card

The first two cards illustrate the versatility of the Joyful Christmas Tree die set. With the die set, I’ve crafted an A2-size card and a square 4 ¼” card which I paired foiled sentiments from the Christmas Essential Glimmer Ovals and the Christmas Essential Glimmer Squares sets.
